Sub advice

Should I go with 2 8" 4 ohm single voice coil subs or 1 10" DVC? This is going in my extended cab f350 super duty.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

The extra surface area of the two 8's will provide more thump for ya...

depends on what u got goin on man.

me personaly i usualy just go with one sub (usualy 12"0. only because its sooo much easier to set up one sub. with 2 there gonna fight eachother for the same air space (the inside of your truck) so there gonna cancel eachother out to a degree, unless u got some mad sterio set up skills. from my experience ive gained little going to a multi sub setup.

also i sualy just run a good set of components up front and nothing else. a stout 4 channel amp should handle the business. just bridge the rear if not running a dvc sub. good imaging and not alot of speakers fighting for air space makes a very efficient system. only draw back is, more speakers usualy proved more backround sound u might be missing from the music. but u can always leave the stock rear speakers (turned down very low) hooked up to the head units amp for alittle fill if u like.

anyway some sepnd alot buying all kinds of amps and speakers. i spends alot on a few very good pieces and IMHO get alot better sound.

Go with the one ten. Then get a slot loaded enclosure it will out pound the 2 eights hands down BTW I got the same truck. But I got 4 12's

I'm trying to keep the truck useable. Its not a sound machine, I'm not going to any stereo competitions and I don't need to be the loudest car in high school.
I have a fosgate punch 301m amp that I'm trying to match speaker(s) to. The box that holds 2 8's fits under the seat and fires down. The 1 10" box fits like a center console for the back and fires down. I have infinity reference 6x8s in all 4 doors running off the deck (45w x 4) which is more than enough mid and high.

10" are overkill. A 30Hz note takes 32 FEET to develope one complete cycle. That's why it's louder (low freq-wise) outside some vehicles than inside. Inside you feel the air pressure change, you don't hear the notes. If you want to feel the sound, more cone area=lower possible notes=more air movement=thump in the chest. If you want to hear the sound, smaller cone that rolls off at about 40Hz works better=8". Also, buy or make the correct enclosure for it, makes a world of difference.
For what it's worth, I spent 23 years making a living at installing car stereo. Just my $.02.

The 32 feet rule is true but the slot loaded center console will help shorten that....Maybe I'll get off my lazy ass and take some pics of my truck tomorrow.

The problem with any slot load (or ported) design is that it becomes a band pass box. Only a narrow range of low frequency will get out to your ear. So instead of having say 40Hz to 140Hz, you get 80 to 95Hz. Not bad in a car environment, but limiting if you are really listening to the music, not just drowning out the road noise.
